The Lees of Virginia : seven generations of an American family by Paul C Nagel( )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The descendants of Richard and Anne Lee, among the first families of Virginia, have occupied a preeminent place in American history. Two were signers of the Declaration of Independence, several others distinguished themselves during the Revolutionary War, and one, Robert E. Lee, remains the most widely known as a Civil War legend. Paul Nagel chronicles seven generations of Lees, covering over two hundred years of American history. We meet the dreamers and the nonconformists, the controversial and tempestuous personalities, the disgracers of the family name--and, of course, the family's redeeming figure: Robert E. Lee, a brilliant military tactician whose ruling motto was self-denial and who saw God's hand in all things. In these and numerous other portraits, Nagel discloses how, from 1640 to 1870, a family spirit united the Lees, making them a force in Virginian and American affairs

Abraham Lincoln : redeemer President by Allen C Guelzo( )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This portrait explores the role of ideas in Lincoln's life. Guelzo presents Lincoln as a serious thinker deeply involved in the problems of nineteenth-century thought, including those of classical liberalism, the Lockean enlightenment, Victorian unbelief, and Calvinist spirituality. Lincoln emerges as a philosophical man who appropriates certain religious values without adhering to any religion, who insists on the pre-eminence of self-interest in spite of becoming the Great Emancipator, and who appeals to natural law and natural theology in politics while remaining a classical nineteenth-century liberal in principle. Based on primary materials from a wide variety of archives, this work sheds light on the intellectual conflicts that led to civil war and that still influence today's "culture wars."

For twenty-two years, beginning in 1926, Paige dazzled throngs with his performance in the Negro Baseball Leagues. Then he outlasted everyone by playing professional baseball, in and out of the majors, until 1965. Struggle against early poverty and racial discrimination was part of Paige's story. So was fast living and a humorous point of view. That inimitable personality is captured in this autobiography, as told to David Lipman. The afterword describes the last twenty years of Paige's life, including the proud moment in 1971 when he became one of the first three great players from the Negro Leagues to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame"--Publisher's website
